H-E-B has finalized the purchase of about 500 acres in Hempstead, Texas, where it plans to build a distribution campus that will be developed in several phases, with the first to begin in late 2024.

“The land purchase is the first step in the development of this strategically planned campus, a project that will position H-E-B to better serve our customers well into the future,” said Carson Landsgard, chief supply chain officer.

“The investment demonstrates H-E-B’s commitment to communities across Texas and will give us the opportunity to create more jobs in the Hempstead area in the coming years.”

Details about the campus are still in the planning phase and will be released as the project develops. The terms of the land deal were not disclosed. Over the long term, the site will include facilities to support H-E-B’s supply chain operations.

“As our city expands its offerings and economic opportunities, we are pleased to welcome H-E-B to Hempstead where we maintain our small-town status and allow progress to take root,” said Hempstead Mayor Erica Gillum. 

“With the arrival of Texas’ favorite retailer, we look forward to the partnership and our future achievements together.”
